The Trinity River was originally seen as way for ships to bring supplies in from the Gulf of Mexico, transforming the city of Dallas into a great inland sea port that would rival the other cities of the world. The only problem with this dream of putting Dallas on the map was that the Trinity River was unpredictable. The River in some areas was too shallow to for any ship to make its way along and other times of the year the river experienced flooding. Until the year 1908, floods had been an accepted part of living in Dallas, but it wasn’t until this year that...

The Trinity River Corridor Project will not just be a way for Dallas to stand out amongst all the other major cities of the world, but will bring the people of Dallas back to the river that has been overlooked for so many years. This project will be a way to get the citizens of Dallas more interested and involved with their river. The Trinity River today, is just a murky body of water surrounded by pollution on all sides of its banks, but will soon become an attraction that the city of Dallas and its residents can be proud of. With the bridges connecting both sides of the city and easing traffic within downtown and the many attractions along the river giving the people of Dallas activities for themselves and their families, the Trinity River will be completely reformed from a flood protection solution into a modern work of art for the city of Dallas.

- The term trinity is used to indicate the doctrine used in the Christian faith that is interpreted as symbolizing that God is unified in his existence in three definite persons which is God the father, God the son and God the holy spirit (Hodgson, Juugel, Kelly, Presitge, Wainwright, 2016). The essence of understanding the trinity is comprehending that God is three persons, each person is divine, and there is only one God (Johnson, 2014, 174-175). Theologians may debate that the term persons may not be the appropriate term in reference to the trinity just because persons may be viewed as actually being separated in the physical since (Gordon, 2015, 485)....

- The trinity is perhaps one of the more complicated, and possibly confusing, doctrines found in Scripture concerning Deity (the Godhead). It is a doctrine that is fully embraced by some who claim to be Christians, while others deny it whole heartedly. Islam, which claims to worship Yahweh (they do not), vehemently denies the idea of the trinity; they claim that to believe such is to embrace polytheism (the belief in multiple gods). With much confusion in the religious world regarding this matter, it is important to look to the Bible, which is the source of truth (John 17:17), to find what the truth is regarding the trinity....

- What is the Trinity. Is written by RC Sproul and gives historical and philosophical context as to the relationship of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Other than where, when, and with whom monotheism started, he gets into the Trinity.... [tags: God, Christianity, Trinity, Jesus]

- According to a Christian, there is one true God, and he revealed Himself through the Holy trinity, which is made up of three people; Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

- Around the time after Jesus’ resurrection, Christians were confused and they needed answers. Jesus was just arisen from the dead. The Church now had Jesus and God to look to, but who was the leader of it all. Who were they to worship. Where does the Spirit fit into all of this. After many questions, they looked to Scripture. Christians have had the belief of Monotheism and that there is One God. Yet, it wasn’t until the Church looked to Scripture that they pieced together what is now known as the Holy Trinity....

- Loss and Healing in The River Warren Each of us, in time, will experience a heart-stopping reality - the death or loss of someone or something we love.

This loss is probably by far the greatest and most severe emotional trauma we can encounter, and the sense of loss and grief that follows is a healthy, natural, and important part of healing ("Death")....

- Two Methods of Defending the Trinity Christians believe in one God, yet the apparent contradictory nature of the Trinity is such that it has caused many to doubt whether Christianity is indeed monotheistic. This has consequently caused Christians to defend their monotheism in relation to the Trinity. In the two such defenses that are studied in this essay, we find that Christians have explained the nature of Trinity with varying degrees of effectiveness and success. Timothy the Patriarch defends the Trinity before the Caliph Madhi with few compelling arguments, and Gregory of Nyssa explains it in a more abstract and therefore more effective way....

- When you think of God do you think of one divine entity or do you take into account the age old idea of the Trinity. For all of time we have understood the three individual person’s in God, the Trinity, to be one in the same. The teaching of the Christian church tells us that God is three unique and separate people’s, but they are at the same time all one person in God. Now people have many different ways to picture or represent the idea of three people as one. The trial of history has come up with many different ideas and images to try and represent the Trinity....
